EXCELLENT...FIRST OFF,THE QUALITY OF THE RECORDING IS EXCELLENT. CHOICE OF MUSIC IS GREAT TOO!!!! LOTS OF GREAT 80S HITS, AND GREAT SEQUENCE OF PLAYING THOSE SONGS. I LOVE THESE EARLY SHOWS. Now that I'm done shouting, I am a product of the 80s, and many of my favorites were played on this show. Big Country's Big Country is an awesome song. Love Gloria Gaynor's hit. Jermaine Stewarts songs area all so catchy, a shame we lost him so early. The Buggles song is another of my favorites. Overall, great work Ron. And congrats on 17 years of kickin' ass!

Subject: Wish the "Songs while driving" was labeled.
Between "Rapture" and "Boogie Wonderland" was "Words" by Missing Persons. Also, "More Than A Woman" by Demetrius (?) between "Big Country" & "... Clothes Off".

I wonder why Ron didn't play the screaming women during the "Frightened by this thing that I've become" line in "Africa".
